Wike heads to Supreme Court

16 December 2015, 21:05

Port Harcourt - Following Wednesday’s ruling of the Court of Appeal, which nullified his election, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has proceeded to the Supreme Court to appeal against the judgement, reports Vanguard.

Wike has directed his lawyers to appeal the ruling of the appellate court, which ordered fresh governorship election in the state within 90 days.

Wike in a press release shortly after the judgment was delivered said he disagrees with the judgement and would exhaust his constitutional right by challenging the judgment at the Supreme Court.

He noted that he remains the duly elected governor of Rivers State pending the determination of his appeal by the apex court.

Governor Wike called on all his supporters and the people of the state to remain calm as justice will be done at the end of day.

He assured the people of the state that he will use all constitutional processes to protect the mandate they freely gave him.
